Youth and Sports Affairs Minister Aymen Almoayyed has congratulated Supreme Council for Youth and Sport first deputy chairman and Bahrain Olympic Committee president Shaikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa on the success of BRAVE CF 50.
“The huge success achieved in organising BRAVE CF 50 is a great source of pride and adds to the organisational accomplishments made by Bahrain thanks to the significant interest of Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the King’s representative for humanitarian work and youth affairs and the Supreme Council for Youth and Sport chairman as well as his support for Bahrain to host major sports competitions, including mixed martial arts (MMA). Bahrain has become a leading player in organising top MMA events on a global scale,” he said.
Mr Almoayyed stressed Shaikh Khalid’s efforts in upgrading the level of the MMA game in Bahrain, thanks to which the kingdom has made a clear mark regionally, underlining the initiatives and programmes that were introduced by him that contributed to developing Bahrain’s organisational and administrative capabilities in the MMA sport.
Meanwhile, Witold Nowak, Deputy Mayor of Konin, Poland, has paid tribute to the exceptional efforts being made by Shaikh Khalid towards supporting the MMA sport, as well as his contributions which promoted this sport at Asian and international levels.
He said that Shaikh Khalid’s constant endeavours have enabled this sport to spread and expand its fanbase as well as provided unique opportunities for talented fighters to showcase their abilities.
